The plugin is one of the most optimized social media plugins in terms of impact on a site’s loading speed (optimized code, compressed pictures etc.).
If you still experience loading speed issues, please note that:
- The more sharing- and invite- features you place on your site, the more external codes you load (i.e. from the social media sites – we just use their code), therefore affecting loading speed. So to prevent this, give your icons only “Visit us”-functionality rather than sharing-functionalities.
- We’ve programmed it so that the code for the social media icons is the one which loads lasts on your site, i.e. after all the other content has already been loaded. This means: even if there is a decrease in loading speed, it does not affect a user’s experience because he sees your site as quickly as before, only the social media icons take a bit longer to load.
There might be also other issues on your site, which cause a high loading speed (e.g. conflicts with our plugins or template issues). Please de-activate those to find out which one causes the conflict.
Still not fixed? We’re happy to look into it as part of our Premium Plugin.
